The missing bolt makes it hard/dangerous to follow the actually line of this, with either a ground fall or a big swing into a ledge depending on weather you clip be first bolt of the neighbouring route. Had to do the start of the route to the left and then move right into this after the missing bolt. Might be nicer if all the bolts were there.

Quite fun but got pumped working out the crux and wanted a rest before tackling the easy top jug section. Probably shouldn't have been such a wuss.

no harder than 4a - nice enough tho

Allan Winstanley 16/Aug/15 Lead O/S

Never 4a! The lowest bolt is at a height where you could seriously hurt yourself with a fall and the crux above this is at least 4b or 4c.

Not sure about the steep finish. Used it to top rope Vogon. Fell off when I put my hand in a muddy crack and tried to move it to a cleaner part. Hmmm.
